Corn and Roasted Red Pepper Chowder

This vegetable soup is a treat any time of year, but especially in summer, when corn is sweet and tender. It can be made partially in advance and reheated with the cream just before serving. (For a lower-calorie soup, omit the heavy cream.) Try this hearty summer chowder with Jalapeño Corn Muffins or Sweet Potato Biscuits and Roasted Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Arugula Salad.
